Aside from every colour under the sun being incorporated into this 200 sq m 1960s Sydney home you also have exposed brick, mural painted on brick, ‘crazy pavers’ flooring, tile, marble, white cork etc. making this home as dynamic and energizing as can be. It is utterly fascinating how design firm YSG managed to turn chaos into something really special. (Photos: Prue Ruscoe, Styling: Alicia Sciberras)
I am in complete denial that summer is over. I am trying to mentally prepare myself to be frozen and miserable for the next 6+ months. In the meantime I will continue to deny the inevitable by staring longingly at summer homes such as this neutral, modern Montauk beauty by Alexander Design.
This is one of those times where the interior of a home really does nothing for me but I would take the exterior in a heartbeat. This is a recently completed 6500 sq ft contemporary designed farmhouse in Surry, England, with a to-die-for exterior (so I won’t bother sharing the interior). It features a natural swimming pond, pod summer house for sheltered outdoor dining, separate annexe, assorted stables, arenas, and barns set on 115 acres with stunning views of the Surrey/Sussex/Kent countryside. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.
Austin in Stereo is a 7,300 sq ft, 4 bedroom home in West Austin where nearly every room of the house was designed by Fern Santini with a unique art or music-themed element. A bar, turntable, Sonos speakers, signed photos of music legends, Woodstock wallpaper, lots of dark walls and graphic patterns make this a really stylin’ and party-ready home.

Up under the eaves with it’s old architectural bones on display is a light, bright Parisian apartment with a modern vibe. Think pops of vibrant blue plucked from a painting, a galley kitchen with stunning stone and storage, storage everywhere. Contemporary French living by Atelier DAAA.
